I love the message of Casting Crown’s new video “Broken Together”
In our media-saturated world seldom do I see a video that truly captures the hopes, struggles, pain, and humble reliance on God that are truly needed to make a Christ-centered, God-honoring marriage possible.
This one does a good job of it.
I love how it portrays the childhood dreams we humans have of male/female relationship, and how we truly are broken together as we walk alongside each other in that journey.
It takes two people – husband and wife – each submitting their own desires and needs to the good of the other. And that’s never easy.
Broken together is a perfect phrase, a perfect expression of what it really looks like to be married for the long haul in submission to God’s greater plans for us and the world.
The video reminds me of the many times I’ve hurt my dear wife – and the many struggles we’ve had to come to resolution and joy once again.

I’d love to hear how the video impacts you.by
I loved this song when I first heard it. Hearing the lyrics I thought, “That’s exactly what I’ve been trying to express to others in my life”.
Now after watching the video I’m absolutely in love with it.
Giving up on marriage is simply evil, to be blunt. Of all the hurtful, sinful and shameful things we can do, I personally feel this is one of the top three worst tragedies. I say this in all confidence because I’ve been divorced twice and one of those times I was the one who gave up first.
The consequences of divorce are generational. The once married couple aren’t the only two to be affected: children may follow their poor example, grandchildren may give up on their God-ordained path toward marriage even before they are of age to marry.
These days the phrase “it’s just a piece of paper” seems to summarize the world’s view of this blessed, precious thing called marriage. I believe this is due to the ease with which so many of us have given up on the one we walked the isle with.
This video does an amazing job of reminding us that we are ALL broken and only with God as our guide can we see how we hurt each other, swallow our pride, apologize and show the Love of Christ to our wives and husbands.
We aren’t perfect. Let’s just accept that as fact then walk as two imperfect people following The One Who is Perfect.
This songs,actually made me cry ,I guess the knowing that as hard as I try to hold our marriage together it’s was already gone.I love my husband but he continued to promise me so much that I can’t believe in him anymore..I not going to sit here an tell you I am broken in so many ways.I lost so much theses last four years.I don’t know if I could actually handle another lost,but I know my Lord’s is there for me through all.I lost my daughter in a car accident three year’s ago an six month later my only son was kill my a gunman that was selling drug an my Son was a police officer and went in to arrested him an he shot my Son.William my husband was not there for me neither time.My Lord’s was an my Lord’s continued to always keep me alive.I think sometimes why me.But being a Christian I know we never suppose to question our Lord’s an the thing that happened in our life.I lost my hope of ever being happy so I replaced it with shouting myself off from everyone.My parents was married 51 year’s,I am the frist in my family to divorce an my family question me about how I could lets my marriage end in the manner it did. Thank you for sharing this amazing video with me..God bless.
Catherine, I’m so sorry to hear about the losses you’ve endured. But I’m thankful to hear of the LORD’s faithful hand in your life and how you’ve clung to Him. I pray you will be able to continue and that you will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
